Lac‑des‑Seize‑Iles... History and Heritage

Lac-des-Seize-Iles... History and Heritage

Discover Lac-des-Seize-Îles, a municipality brimming with history, nature, archeological treasures and a long-standing community, making it one of the many jewels of the Pays-d’en-Haut territory.


The municipality of Lac-des-Seize-Îles is named after its largest lake and includes four other bodies of water: Wonish Lake to the east, Baie des soeurs to the north, du Grand Héron Lake and Laurel Lake to the south, which it shares with the municipality of Wentworth-North.

The village core is located at the head of the lake. Home to nearly 200 people, its population swells by several hundred seasonal residents between May and October. A favourite vacation spot, Lac-des-Seize-Îles is also popular with the scientific community thanks to its Centre d’interprétation des eaux laurentiennes (CIEL), or the Laurentian Water Interpretation Centre.

We invite you to take the shuttle at the village dock to discover the beauty of the lake, its islands and its built heritage. You will be charmed by its century boathouses and its deep blue shimmering water which
hides unexpected treasures in its depths.


Use the Preload option of the BaladoDiscovery mobile application to access the interactive map and offline content (without Internet) rendered on site.


Note that the train station, Rodger Park and the Laurentian Water Interpretation Centre (CIEL) are the only points of interest with public access. You can discover the other points virtually using the interactive map on your mobile, otherwise from the Brunet pavilion or by taking the shuttle to visit the lake.


Municipal parking is available for a fee near Brunet Hall. The free Aerobic Corridor parking lot is located at the corner of Village Road (Route 364) and de l'Église Street.

Enjoy your visit!
